We Need To Talk About Crying At Work

The author doesn’t have to be sad to cry — the older he gets, the more weepy he becomes. Crying gives him catharsis: a release that washes away stress and sadness, anger and anxiety, or even overwhelming happiness.

But in feeling all of those feels, crying helps him refocus on the things and people that really matter to him. Crying makes him feel stronger by showing him what he cares about.
